The International Security Accelerator welcomes teams from a very wide range of sectors within the Wider Security area including Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cybersecurity, Blockchain, RegTech, Fintech or other Deep technologies.

“The Accelerator was the turning point for Altada. We knew we had something but the Accelerator helped us focus our product offering, refine our investor proposition and ultimately transform the business in 13 weeks.” - Allan Beechinor, Altada

Following 13 weeks of intensive mentoring and in-depth workshops with a focus on the team, technology, business model, market opportunity and investor readiness, the Teams from the first cohort are currently seeking investment in their businesses. World class mentors like Julian Costley, Investor & Serial Entrepreneur; Eamonn Carey, TechStars; Joe O’Sullivan, Ophir (formerly Apple) and Ronan Murphy, Smarttech have challenged and advised the teams sharing their experience.

The teams are developing world class technology solutions in Artificial Intelligence, BlockChain and CyberSecurity. 

Key to this Accelerator is the focus on team, the product proposition and the transformational process and change that has transpired in some of the teams. Each of the teams have brought product to market during the 13 weeks, with one team, Altada, already securing international Enterprise clients.

“It has been really interesting to watch these teams grow in the 13 week Accelerator and to watch the transformationalchange taking place. The technologies involved are crucial in today’s connected world and there is no doubt there are some real rising stars in the group, watch this space!” William Dalton, Director EMEA IS & Corporate Technology, Trend Micro
